MARIE Curie Hospice Bradford will host a series of workshops and an Art After Loss exhibition as part of Dying Matters Awareness Week next month.

Running from May 6 to 12, Dying Matters Awareness Week is organised by Hospice UK and is designed to encourage honest, timely conversations about death and dying.

On Tuesday, May 7, Marie Curie Bradford Hospice, in Maudsley Street will host representatives from different organisations to help people explore the legal, practical, and emotional decisions connected to planning for end of life.

Annette Clark, Marie Curie Head of Operations for Yorkshire, said: “There is often a reluctance to talk about death and dying, but having open conversations can help people to feel more in control, to plan ahead and make decisions on where and how they are cared for.”

The event includes a workshop, led by Pudsey Legal, detailing the legal aspects around death and dying.

Funeral Wishes workshops will be held by Full Circle Funerals and Sadaqah Jariyah Funeral Services, and there will also be a “Memories and Flowers” workshop from Sammie’s Flowers of Kiddal Quarry Farm, exploring grief and loss.

An Art After Loss exhibition organised by Full Circle will also be displayed at the hospice in May.
